So happy with this bike!

The Aethos glides so smoothly and fast. The power meter is a new training tool for me that is a great unexpected feature on the expert model I’m a 64 year old cyclist who is absolutely loving this bike!

Outstanding

I’m a 67 year old cyclist, and decided to treat myself to a new bike, my main pros are: quality of frame and construction, SRAM AXS shifting, carbon Rovel wheelset, carbon seat post, comfort, handling, excellent handling. I find no cons.

THE Bike for the Everyday Cyclist

The Aethos Expert has exceeded expectations in every area. I love the clean, minimalistic design. The ride comfort is stellar. The bike just seems to absorb the road, so I find myself excited and refreshed when I'm done riding vs. being beat up after riding some other high end aero/racer bikes. When I bought the Aethos, I expected a downgrade in speed, and yes, I have noticed the bike does not "feel" as fast as my previous bikes. But my speed data is nearly the same, and I can easily get her over 30 mph on flats during intervals or when putting the power down. I think the comfort sort of takes away some of the "riding on the edge" that comes with an aero bike. I do find that on downhills and when taking corners at speed, I have to give a bit more steering input into the bike to really leverage her out. Most importantly to me, this bike has rejuvenated my love for the sport of cycling and I just want to ride more and more.

Awesome handling!

From the specs: the bike is light. I got it. What I didn't expect was a. How superb it was on curves. I went flying down a hill outside Santa Barbara and couldn't believe how nice it was on the curves and occasional switchback. And it does this without feeling as stiff as some racing bikes -- it's a great combination of handling and "smoothness" (for lack of a better term). b. How well it handled the bumps/potholes etc.. Better than my gravel bike for instance. I bought the bike without testing it -- something I rarely do -- but decided to trust the reviews. I'm glad I went for it!
